WHERE SHOOT THE NEW STAR WARS FLICKS?
... Why, in Pinewood, England, U.K., of course; as the home base. Shooting will happen also in countries far, far away.
It's a shame that Pinewood Canada, here in Toronto, was not picked as rebel... I mean, home base for the next Star Wars movie. Those sound-stages could use the occupancy, Toronto film crews could use the work. I'm sure that that complex was discussed as a possible centre; it's just as possible the type of work would be too much for what Toronto crews are used to, and, the Canadian Dollar is too strong, and has been for a while. (To be honest about it, I can't picture a schleppy Toronto film crew working on a Star Wars movie.)
Hopefully the next Star Wars script will get as much attention as the shooting locations....
